About Perkbox In-Person

Perkbox In-Person is a brand new event series bringing together HR and business leaders to network, share insights and drive conversation around key industry topics and trends.

The first event will take a deep dive into borderless culture. As the world of work evolves, the days of geography defining where and how people work are fast disappearing. Borderless working — where many employees operate remotely and across locations, rather than in regional offices — is here to stay.

We recently conducted a survey of business leaders to get their thoughts, and want to share the findings with you, including;

  • The opportunities and obstacles arising from borderless working
  • The resulting evolution of benefits and rewards strategies
  • The impact borderless working has had on company culture and Diversity & Inclusion strategies

Perkbox will be joined by Kate Gray, Director of People and Talent at Omnipresent to explore these findings and share her insights on the evolving work of work.
